Alison Teal is a traveller who is not afraid of much. She went to the Maldives to show the hidden face of this small corner of paradise. Far from the post card images that we are accustomed to seeing, she shows us in this series of photographs that is as striking as it is repugnant, that the island is covered in some places by mountains of garbage brought in by the tide. She goes even farther by showing us an environment spoiled by the immense landfills of the Thilafushi islands where plastic is burned all day long. This garbage are partially created by an increasing number of tourists coming for vacation. According to one report, each visitor generates 3.5 kg of garbage per day (400 tons in all)!
